Hergé Centenary

Hergé - Tintin and Snowy in the SpotlightBelgium is celebrating the centenary of the birth of Georges Remi with commemorative stamps, currency, a new museum, exhibitions ... er ... hang on. Who? He's better known as Hergé, creator of that indefatigable cub reporter Tintin and his faithful mutt Snowy. First printed in 1928, the Tintin comics have sold more than 200 million copies worldwide and have been translated into 55 languages. That makes Hergé one of the most popular artists ever. Arts Council take note.
